Gel Prints and Journals
Instructor: Ophelia Staton
Class Code: OS180603
Workshop Fee: $65
Medium: Mixed Media
Sunday, June 3rd, 1:00pm-4:00pm
In the workshop, we will combine the freedom of playing with paints and other mediums in our journals and experiment with prints on a Gel Plate. Combining the two opens up worlds of creative possibilities!
We will begin with the basics of journaling and discuss a variety of materials and supplies to use while creating in our journals. We will then explore printing with a variety of mark making tools. We will then bring the two together to create dynamic pages.
Supplies to bring:
Journal – Ophelia uses the Strathmore Visual Journal (drawing format) 9x12.
Paints – Grab your favorite colors of Lukas Cryl Studio paints, and maybe even a fluorescent color too!
Brushes – The Polar Flo – clear handled 1in is my absolute favorite.
Gel Plate – 8x10 size is perfect
Soft Brayer – the one with the cream color brayer by Speedball. There are two colors, but I find that I like the cream colored one best.
